Welcome back! In the midst of this “Gabriel the villain” controversy, Gabe runs over 2 people at Lowers and then Chris Ward’s daughter, Malia, pushes Gabe off a wave! We then recap the Hurley Lowers Pro including the ASP’s (soon to be the WSL) attempt to fine Jordy $50,000 for wearing a Red Bull hat. Also, Kelly Slater dropped a new song, Point Break 2 invaded massive Teahupo’o, Bassy caught 100 waves in 7 hours. And we figure out who’s a kook and who’s a duke and much, much more! Enjoy.

GABRIEL MEDINA

Laurie Towner took a massive beating where he straightened out on a closeout, hit his head on the reef, blacked out, got blasted by the 2nd wave. Broke his jaw, whip lash his neck and back, punctures and stitches through his neck and into the back of his mouth, that narrowly missed an artery.

In part 1 of 2, Mickey unpacks his adolescence growing up in Malibu with shaping pioneers Joe Quigg and Matt Kivlin. He then tells us about the very first time he saw Phil Edwards and how Mickey Dora helped define his own personal code of ethics. And sursprisingly, Mickey also shares his insight into modern surfing, Kelly Slater, John John Florence, Gabriel Medina, and the battle for the 2014 world title.
